Shanghai Family Vacations | Ciao Bambino!

Choose Shanghai for an urban vacation with a ton of wow factor. Kids are dazzled by the skyline here, home to some of the tallest buildings in the world. To think none of them existed 25 years ago just adds to the intrigue. Wander the older, more traditional part of the city in kid-friendly fashion by letting your children select a few trinkets to take home from the many vendors that crowd the streets. When you need fresh air, head over to Yu Garden, take a tai chi lesson or try your hand at kite flying. Families swoon over modern, kid-friendly hotels in coveted locations that are walk-out to many of Shanghai’s attractions.
